James Monroe Ancestry | James Monroe was born in 1758 in Virginia to a prosperous family. He attended William and Mary College, but was not there very long when he and some of his fellow students left to join the Continental Army in 1775.

I have a reproduction French 1766 Charleville Infantry Flintlock Musket. France provided tens of thousands of these muskets to the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. With the drilling of a vent hole, the musket will be exactly like the originals and will be fire ready.
Marquis de Lafayette, Revolutionary War Continental Army Major General, was born September 6, 1757.

To show how dogs bring out the good in us, we created a film about the true story of the American Continental Army finding their enemy’s lost dog wandering through their camp during the Revolutionary War.

Washington was born into the provincial gentry of Colonial Virginia to a family of wealthy planters who owned tobacco plantations and slaves, which he inherited.

In 1775, the Second Continental Congress commissioned him as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army in the American Revolution.
